C&F Gives Back


We believe that a strong community benefits everyone. That’s why C&F has been highly committed to the communities we serve with our time, our talent and our treasure. Our community commitment is perhaps the best example of our Focused on You mission and we look forward to growing this support in the future.

One way we serve our community is through partnerships and sponsoring community events like Sportable, Junior Achievement, and involvement with local Chamber of Commerce organizations and other non-profit entities.

In addition, each month C&F partners with a nonprofit organization with a program we call First Friday Focus. First Friday Focus days happen the first Friday of each month. On that day C&F employees donate, volunteer, and help organize events to support the entities we are focused on.

C&F Cash Mobs are another way we support our local businesses in our community. Cash Mobs occur the third Saturday of the month at various small businesses in our market area. Cash Mobs are designed to bring support and awareness to local businesses.
